Diary of a StreetSnaper

We asked Bridget Fleming to send us a visual roundup and commentary from her street snapping days at the fashion show circuit this SS12 season…

” Freja. In this case, her long legs were striding forward, her hands gesturing, “hurry up and take the shot. Press the button. Click. Come on.”  I think she thought I was someone else, maybe I was wearing heels that day.  I’m not sure.  But she was really nice the following day and I am becoming much better at walking backwards to get a shot, quickly, especially in heels! ” BF

Photo lesson 101. Try to get Arizona Muse in focus. Most magazines want images of her. Tick.

Backstage at Dries Van Noten.

Front row at the Sass and Bide show London.  I love going to this show for so many reasons. It’s like the Vegemite of fashion for an Expat.

After so many shows, in so many cities, you know almost everyone by face, name and or personally.  Smile.

A sea of guests and models always outside a show, on cell (err mobile) phones, desperately trying to locate their drivers.

I don’t know what it is about the Dazed and Confused team, but after coming home to crunch through my images, I realized that I had a fixation, albeit unconscious, on chasing Jefferson’s team for a shot.  Maybe it has something to do with the fact that their Fashion Editor Katie Shillingford is almost always impossible to catch, she seems to calculate her entry at each show, cleverly managing to avoid most of the photographers on almost every occasion.  I love the image of her, heels in hand, after leaving a show at the Tuileries.
